HQI is an artist run not-profit which works with owners of vacant
buildings to provide long term arts facilities to visual and recording
artists based in London. Our first space is inside a former BBC social
club in White City, London
The project was born of a wish to establish an independent and nurturing space in the city in which to make work (generally relating to music) that is collaborative, spontaneous and expressive in nature, and where all unnecessary distractions or obstacles that get in the way are removed.
Our studio is 24/7 access with 2 music and video editing studios, a communal visual arts studio, a workshop room and a 1500sq foot exhibition space and music venue. To see pictures of amenities and which artists are involved, please visit @_h_q_i_
We regularly offer residencies to musicians, visual artists or anyone that else doing interesting work. All new artists are offered at least 3 months of free space with options to extend or contribute via a low nominal fee based on affordability.
All revenue is driven back into making the project a sustainable and vibrant community for the benefit and development of the artists involved and just as importantly, for those who would like to access and enjoy the output.
There is no application process for space at HQI. Please just drop us an email and say hello if you are interested.
